Today we continue our exploration of one of the many organizers in the Movement who had great influence but were not as well-known. This episode features an interview from January of 1998 when Shelley sat down with Tommy Wrenn.

Active in the movement in both Birmingham and Selma, Wrenn worked as a field staffer for the Dr King's Southern Christian Leadership Conference.

Wrenn would go into towns to set up routes for protest marchers before King would arrive, doing the groundwork to make the event a success.

He expresses his frustration at the lack of support he received and how many people believed in the mission of the movement but stayed in the background.

Even after retiring as a dental technician, he remained active in politics and the movement until his death in 2010.
